The IP update function is disabled by default because this application does not only allow you to perform IP updates, but also gives you the option to manage your free dynamic DNS hostnames on your mobile device. If you want to use this application for IP updates, You need to configure the utility as shown:

Activate IP update  This field has to be enabled for the IP update function to run.

Update IPv4 Address  Enable this option if you want your IPv4 address to be updated.

Update IPv6 Address  Enable this option if you want your IPv6 address to be updated.

IP Update Group  Use 'IP Update Group' parameter if you want to update IP address for one or a collection of hostnames including those created using aliases in different locations. You may set up group names for your hostnames in the control panel. Make sure that you leave the 'IP Update Group' field empty if you did not assign your hostnames to a location/group in the control panel.

Once you fill out all the fields, clicking the Done button will save your settings. The current version of the Android app does not support automatic updates and clicking on the 'Update IP Now' button will update the IP.
